Blogging 101: Day Eight – Be a Good Neighbo(u)r

Wait… did I read that correctly? Day eight?!!

Okay, so since I haven’t previously mentioned this in any of my previous blog posts (woops…), many of you may not know that I am currently taking part in the online Blogging101 course, which will hopefully strengthen my skills as a writer and blogger!

As I currently jam out to “I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper)” by T-Pain, I write in an effort to reach out to some of my fellow Blogging101-ers, as well as anyone else who may happen to stumble across this humble little blog of mine.

(And yes, I know as a feminist I should not be listening to such “trash”, but it’s catchy and I’m allowed to have my guilty pleasures.)

So far, I haven’t exactly been completing every assignment to a T, but I have been trying to do my best with staying up to date! Today’s assignment was to:

leave comments on at least four blogs that you’ve never commented on before.

Boy, did I enjoy this assignment. I must admit, I commented on a few more than four blogs. For someone who isn’t exactly fluent in the language of face-to-face social interaction, I’m excited to be able to connect with people through my writing. I love the community that the course has provided me with thus far, and it’s comforting to know that I’m not the only blogger out there just starting out, not really sure where they are headed. But then again, I suppose that’s the point of this journey.

I hope that as I continue to blog I’ll be able to connect with others with similar (and different) interests, beliefs, and situations. I must admit, every time I get a notification saying someone liked my comment, or replied to something I posted, my heart jumps a bit. I suppose that’s why we are all here on the internet, writing about our various and completely diverse experiences, hoping to find others to connect with! There’s a giant online community out there, and I hope that I am able to become a part of it.

Until next time…

    Spot-on! As an introvert I do sometimes find it tough to really talk to people, and it’s really heartbreaking to know that half of the time they do not pay attention! It’s really writing and reading that gets us in our grooves, and I hope you’ll feel more comfortable in your blogging journey! 🙂 Definitely going to follow your blog!
